I’m always amazed at how different cards look even when they use the same ingredients. Both cards below use the Wetlands and the Sweet Essentials stamp sets. Paper is Chocolate Chip, Island Indigo, and Naturals Ivory. Ink is Chocolate Chip, Island Indigo, and Old Olive.
My First Version:
A sketch from Freshly Made Sketches inspired the layout of this card. I created 2 separate focal areas with the birds in the horizontal panel and the grass in the vertical panel, as well as along the bottom of the card. Two Island Indigo candy dots help balance the color.
My Second Version:
For this card I chose a clean and simple design with the only embellishment being several strands of Linen Thread, Island Indigo, and Early Espresso Baker’s Twine wrapped around the card.
I think the second version is my favorite. Which is your favorite?
Enjoy, and happy stamping!
